faculty members, selected by the Faculty Senate; one member selected
by the Council of Deans; and one Supportive Professional Staff member, selected by the Supportive Professional Staff Council. Length of terms shall be three-year,
The chair of the committee shall be appointed by the executive vice president and provost.
B. The duties of the committee shall be:
University Councils, committees, and units authorized by the University
Constitution and Bylaws to initiate policies and procedures that
wish to have new or revised
policies and/or procedures included in the University Academic Policies and Procedures Manual (APPM) shall submit them for review by the committee and the
provost. Policies that derive from some external mandate (e.g., federal or state law, or regulations of the Illinois Board of Higher Education or governing board) shall
indicate that source.
The committee and the provost shall determine, in accordance with the inclusion
criteria, whether policies and/or procedures will be included in the APPM.
decision is positive, the new or revised policies and/or procedures will be included in the APPM, and all offices and units on the distribution list for the APPM will
receive copies of the new or revised material as soon as possible. If the decision is negative, the committee may suggest alternative means of disseminating the
information. Policy-making bodies may also decide to delete policies; proposed deletions from the APPM should likewise be submitted to the committee.
If the committee feels that a particular policy action represents a major
policy change, and it has come from a unit that does not regularly report
its actions to the
University Council, the committee may refer the material to the executive secretary of the University Council for a determination of whether University Council review
should occur before inclusion in the APPM. The criteria for inclusion in the Academic Policies and Procedures Manual (APPM) are as follows: Information to be
included should relate primarily to such academic matters (including personnel matters, exclusive of civil service) as might arise in the conduct of the daily
business of academic departments and other units. Moreover, the materials included in the APPM should not duplicate material available in substantially the same
form in the NIU Constitution and Bylaws, the NIU Business Procedures Manual, the NIU graduate and undergraduate catalogs, or the regulations of the NIU
governing board or the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
C. Minutes shall
be sent to the Academic Policies and Procedures Manual Advisory Committee
members. Approved new or revised policies and procedures shall be
sent to all offices and units on the distribution list for the Academic Policies and Procedures Manual. The distribution list is determined by the executive vice
president and provost or his/her designee.
